Text 2 Lovers by K Webster & J.D. Hollyfield Blog Tour

It’s the start of nothing good.
I fired off a storm of raunchy text messages… to the wrong number.
And he replied.
Him: Show me a picture.
Him: Tell me your name.
Why does the lure of anonymity have me craving to indulge a stranger?

It’s the start of everything right.
I received a slew of text messages… when everything in my life was wrong.
And she made me laugh again.
Her: You’re probably a creeper.
Her: Possibly a stalker.
Why do I have the overwhelming need to find this stranger who saved me and make her mine?

Him: Take a chance with me.
Her: This is crazy.
Him: I need to see you.
Her: What are we doing?
Him: We’re about to find out.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

This is the first in a new series – and is a great combination of comedy, romance, and crazy!

The story is mainly told from the view point of either Dani or Ram – the two texters – with a chapter or two from Dani's best friend, Andie, or Ram's brother, Roman, or his sister, Reagan. This is very effective and the two authors use their voices very effectively to differentiate between the male and female narrative. I found the jumps from humour, to sexy, and then to serious to work really well, and the plot works too.

The story is satisfying in its own right, but I cannot deny that I am delighted that there is a new book coming, and that it will be featuring the utterly crazy Andie and... no, I wouldn't spoil it for you!

Great job Ms. Hollyfield and Ms. Webster, can't wait to get hold of the next book.

Dani is a kind-hearted person, too kind for her own good. When she catches her boyfriend cheating on her, she doesn't even blame him. She lets people walk over her because she is too kind. While out drinking with her BFF, Andie, she gets drunk and texts her ex and sends mean texts to him. Turns out the texts go to a wrong number. But can it be the start of something good?

Ram is trying to get his life back after losing his job, after his ex-girlfriend set him up at work. He is depressed and can't sleep. He just needs to get this one big client to get the ball rolling to start his own business. When a random text comes, he has to answer it. And he is glad he does.

Will the drunken text lead to a relationship for Dani and Ram? Can Dani learn to stick up for herself? Will Ram get his business off and running?

This is a funny, sweet, and sexy read, you will be rolling on the floor at times. Andie was a little harsh to Dani for me, but sometimes people need to hear the hardcore truth about themselves to understand. So, if you like a good, funny rom-com, pick this one up. You will not be disappointed. I love K. Webster but this is a first for me from J.D. Hollyfield and I can't wait for Andie's story. And I look forward to reading more from Hollyfield.

This was a fast read filled with laughs, tears, and love. I loved the chemistry between Dani and Ram. The texting back and forth was just adorable. Andi and Roman were an added bonus. This is something that I can see happening to anyone and I really enjoyed the story, the chemistry. and the characters. I can’t wait to read the next one!

Characters: Well written and easy to connect with
Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: First in series
Genre: Romance
Would I read more by this author: Yes

Dani lets people walk all over her. She has a big heart and hates to hurt other people's feelings. When she catches her boyfriend not only cheating but right after he proposed, she vows to change. With the help of her best friend, Andie, who is Dani's polar opposite, and some tequila, she decides to text him how she feels. Unfortunately, the messages never make it to her ex.

With the help of Andie and Ram, can she learn to say no and put herself first?

Text 2 Lovers was a fun read. I loved the back and forth between Dani and Ram.

Text 2 Lovers was a cute "palete-cleansing" book. The situation was fun and totally plausible. The beginning of the story had me laughing out loud (I love, love, loved The Princess Bride references).

Dani and Ram are made for each other, they just don't know it yet. Texting a wrong number proves to be a fateful accident, with fantastic results. As they get to know each other, I felt a warm glow. Some of the exchanges were absolutely hilarious, others were super-hot and sweet.

Once Dani and Ram make a go of things, I started to lose interest due to petty issues – he hadn't disclosed info to her, she was insecure, etc. At this time, I started paying more attention to the secondary characters.

I have mixed feelings. This was cute, it was sweet and funny, but it also seemed a bit immature at times, and overly dramatic. I loved Ram, Dani is likeable at times and annoying at others. The secondary cast is rather one dimensional, but they do add to the story.

I'm just wondering where these characters will end up in the future ;)

2 stars for the conflict
4 stars for the rest of the novel.
3 stars in total, because I did enjoy the book as a whole, with my issue being purely opinion. Andie and some of the plot points ruined the fun for me.

I will preface this review by saying I'm a reserved, serious person. I love a humorous read like the next person, but the humor has to have logic. Temper-tantrum-throwing-for-no-reason side characters is a hard limit of mine. It's not funny – Andie needs therapy and meds. On a darker note: Ram needed professional help as well. Another hard limit of mine is miscommunication as a plot point, where one 2-minute conversation would make 50+ pages unnecessary. Sometimes it works – it didn't work for me this time.

Text 2 Lovers is a sexy little story, one romance lovers will devour, but my personality became an issue while I read the last quarter. I read 75% of the novel in one sitting, finding it humorous and light, with amazing banter, a romantic storyline, and likable characters (outside of the negative and annoying Andie). The texts were awkwardly humorous. The calls were hotter than the sun. After that point, the story turns into 'characters acting out of character,' because the page amount couldn't support the story.
